But then – About an hour later a car stopped in the front and for ten minutes checked out the house. Not sure if they were trying to access data on it. As far as I know it’s not on the internet yet. Since I live on a cul-de-sac road with no through traffic, I took it as a positive sign. When I was house hunting I would do a drive-through in neighborhoods where I wanted to live. Sure hope they have a big bank account. I couldn’t tell by the car. I was a black SUV-looking thing.
A fond adieu – We have new young neighbors on our street that moved here at the end of summer. When they heard we were going to sell, the husband told the beloved husband they are hoping for young people to come in and change the neighborhood. Yep, let’s get out all the old people! We don’t care. Come with a nice check and it’s yours.
A not so fond adieu – The holidays are done. Our house is pretty with the mantle decorated and the tree so I might keep them up for a few more days. When they come down they will be transported to the new digs. The holidays were bizarre this year. We decorated somewhat but not too much. People can’t get together so most of what we did was pack or watch Hallmark movies. Even this introvert craves people. What? I may have to take curmudgeon lessons to get back my snip. I wonder if they have those on YouTube.
Mice – From time to time we get mice. Cute little critters with big eyes. If I don’t catch them, the cats bite off their teeny tiny heads. There is a basement area that is blocked off from cat entry. We have storage there. As I was pulling down a box from the top shelf, a load of mouse poop landed on me. We have had no sign of mice since the fall but I’ll be sure to clean it up before prospective buyers come through. Our property backs up to a water retention area (that rarely gets water). It gets pretty overgrown so we get lots of critters. Our home takes an outdoor person who appreciates the privacy and the critter visits. There is nothing more beautiful than watching a fox family come through for a drink at the pond. As I was enjoying their last visit, papa fox grabbed one of my well-fed squirrels for breakfast. I wasn’t happy about that but it’s the circle of life.
So how was your week?
